According to the traditional design which is 5m x 20m townhouse, the architect has carefully considered how to reorganize the modular housing complex with an area of land equal to the area of the townhouse but has expanded the width to 7m and narrow the depth to 14m to facilitate better natural light and ventilation. The setbacks in front and behind the house create good ventilation for urban space.

The façade of the building uses simple, neat lines by the adjacent modules to create its own modern rhythm and style, according to the minimalist architecture, increasing the community green space as the main factor. The balconies and decorative stone walls are carefully researched and arranged according to a particular rule, creating a lively rhythm throughout the streets.
